This data base includes field, petrographycal, geochemical and geochronological data of metamorphic rocks which were sampled in Victoria Land during six italian antarctic expeditions in the period from 1985 to 1991. Analytical work has carried out as part of the "Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide" (Sector: Earth Sciences, Research themes: A and B).
